NOTE: Many parts of this tab exclude multiple strikings of chords,
other parts (eg. the first line) don't. If the tab seems misleading, 
make sure u listen to the song, or know it well, especially for the
solos; the timing and speed are not indicated so use the chord changes
below it to get the timing right. If u look closely its all there...

And thats about all of it. Note: knowing Cheney, I've probably left out a whole lot of vibrato/slides, so make sure to use tons in the solos ;) Have any comments, suggestions? Email me: matty_pilot@optusnet.com.au I think I got it pretty much spot on, but if I made a mistake, ur welcome to correct it. Matt Gault
